Volunteers needed for MDTU City Catch on April 14th.
Good morning, I am reposting this from the main board. We are still in need of some volunteers on the 14. It is truly a great event. I hope to see you out there.
Calling all volunteers, we need your help with the annual MDTU City Catch! MDTU, in cooperation with the Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks provides Baltimore City children with a half day's fishing experience and a spin cast outfit to take home. We stock a local stream with trout, and provide the tackle, bait, and guides.
City Catch is scheduled for Saturday, April 14, 2012. As always, we need volunteers to make this annual event a success.
MD TU will need volunteers on two days. On Friday, April 13th, we will stock 800 Rainbows in Dead Run, a pretty stream in Leakin Park. Stocking, which is always fun and interesting, will take place in the morning at a time to be announced.
City Catch itself will take place on Saturday, April 14th. We need anglers (no experience necessary) to serve as guides to teach the kids the fun of fishing and the value of conservation.
On the 14th, we ask volunteers to arrive by 8:00 a.m. for a brief orientation. At 9:00 a.m., 90 kids will arrive for a half day of fishing followed by a hotdog lunch at noon. MDTU will provide each child with a spinning rod and tackle that they can take home. Our aim is to have one guide for every two kids.
City Catch is fun and rewarding. The volunteers enjoy themselves as much as the kids. City Catch is, however, volunteer intensive, and we need your help. You can volunteer for the 13th, the 14th, or both. Our greatest need is on the 14th when the kids arrive.
